Emerson is a fifth generation native of the Mississippi Delta dating back to the late 1800’s. With strong family ties in the Indianola Commercial Real Estate Market, Emerson manages and consults both clients and prospective clients on real estate opportunities in and around Sunflower County, MS.
After graduating from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 1998, Emerson spent a year enjoying the mountains of Aspen, Colorado which proved to be a much-needed prospective change for his future plans. His first job in real estate would be realized in Denver, Colorado as a real estate mortgage consultant, followed by six years managing a successful financial futures trading group at the Chicago Board of Trade.
Originally receiving his real estate license in 2006 selling homes along the beaches of Highway 30A in Florida, Emerson has since held real estate licenses in both Georgia and Mississippi as well. Shortly after moving back to the Mississippi Delta in 2013 to manage and sell his real estate investments, he decided his love of the area was just too strong to move away. As a consultant with his late father’s firm Lovelace Real Estate Investments, Emerson built a successful real estate investment portfolio he proudly manages to this day.
Over the course of his professional career in real estate finance, sales, consulting and management, nothing is more important to Emerson than the fiduciary relationship with his clients.
